Directed by Nisha Ganatra (Late Night) and written by Flora Greeson, a former personal assistant in the music industry, THE HIGH NOTE features a showstopping cast alongside Ross and Johnson including Kelvin Harrison, Jr. (Luce), Bill Pullman (“The Sinner”), Zoë Chao (Where’d You Go, Bernadette), and June Diane Raphael (The Disaster Artist) with Eddie Izzard (Ocean’s Thirteen) and Ice Cube (Ride Along).

unnamedSet in the dazzling world of the LA music scene comes the story of Grace Davis (Ross), a superstar whose talent, and ego, have reached unbelievable heights. Maggie (Johnson) is Grace’s overworked personal assistant who’s stuck running errands but still aspires to her childhood dream of becoming a music producer. When Grace’s manager (Ice Cube) presents her with a choice that could alter the course of her career, Grace must choose between playing it safe or listening to her heart in a decision that could change her life forever. Entertaining and hilarious, THE HIGH NOTE is an uplifting must-own film with a profound message that reminds audiences everywhere to follow your dreams.
